Pressure Canner GaugeWarmer months are on the way, which means getting prepared to can your favorite fruits and vegetables! If you’re using a pressure canner, it’s very important to check the pressure gauge frequently, to verify that the gauge is reading the pressure (psi) correctly. Pressure gauges that are off by more than 2 psi, need to be replaced. If you’re in need of a pressure canner gauge tester, contact the N.C. Cooperative Extension of Union County office about checking your gauge at our location at the Agriculture Center. Happy Canning!
